Mustang Island State Park

Many state park beaches around the country are reserved for day use, but the Mustang Island State Park is an ideal place to park your RV this May. The park is home to 48 campsites with hook-ups and 300 sites without them, so you can make your reservation, fire up your RV and get your spring and summer beach adventures started today.
Things to Do at the Park
There are tons of things to do at Mustang Island State Park aside from hanging out at the campsite. The park is home to roughly 20 miles of paddling trails that take kayakers, canoers and stand-up paddle boarders through some of the best shallow water fishing areas in the state.
Swimming, surfing, biking, beach-combing and exploring area attractions — like the Copano Fishing Pier, the town of Port Aransas and the Texas State Aquarium — keep visitors occupied from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave.
Park Details
Mustang Island’s busiest seasons are spring and summer, and it helps to make a reservation online or by phone before you arrive. The park gates are open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the entrance fee is $5 per person for daytime use. Drive-up campsites cost $10 per night, and campsites with water and electricity cost $20 nightly.
Mustang Island State Park campsites are located 1/3 mile from the beach, and campers have access to full bathrooms with hot showers. Beach-goers enjoy rinse showers and portable toilets along the 2-mile-long beach strand.
Mustang Island State Park Location
Mustang Island State Park is located just east of Corpus Christi and south of Port Aransas. The park is less than 30 minutes from CCRV, Corpus Christi’s go-to RV dealership and service center.
